The original My Super Sweet 16 aired from 2005-2008, and in the last ten years teens have really figured out what makes good content.
Another season of Catfish is on the way, with a teaser that makes you wonder yet again how this show and these people still exists.
In pop culture, retroism tends to run on a 20-year cycle—two decades after it happens, it’s ripe for return. Total Request Live hit MTV in September 1998 (and was preceded by MTV Live, which bowed in September 1997), which means it’s prime time to get in ahead of the nostalgia curve. The wise already have—there are…
In the opening scene of MTV’s new comedy Sweet/Vicious, a masked invader armed with a knife pins a twentysomething man to the floor of his bedroom. “Do you know this girl?” the masked figure, voice disguised, asks him. “Are you scared? Do you feel powerless? Do I have consent?” The man, frightened and bruised, agrees…
Somewhere between an embarrassment of riches and a straight-up embarrassment for all parties involved (including voracious viewers like myself) is the fact that three new MTV True Life episodes have aired this week. The most... eccentric of these offerings was Wednesday night’s True Life: I’m an Adult Baby, which…
On May 26, a shooting at a T.I. concert at New York’s Irving Plaza left one dead (bodyguard Ronald McPhatter) and three others injured. One of the victims, 26-year-old Jersey City resident Maggie Carrie Heckstall, told her story about the shooting and the resulting trauma she lives with on last night’s True Life: I’ve…
It’s been 18 years since the Emmy-winning documentary series True Life premiered on MTV, and in that time they’ve given their audience of teens and young adults a pathos-filled look into scores of lives and experiences they might not otherwise have been exposed to. Some stories are bleak (the show’s premiere episode…
Heroic G-Eazy kiss denier Britney Spears is reportedly so pissed off at MTV right now because she assumed she would be the “headliner” of the VMAs, and feels like second-tier (or worse!) compared to Rihanna and Beyonce.
According to TMZ, Kanye West’s four-minute performance on the VMAs this Sunday will be filled with whatever the hell he wants to do—as opposed to, say, a request that he perform his latest hit or debut a new one, for instance, as we can assume many of the other performers will do.
Nicole Byer, Upright Citizens Brigade alum and fan favorite from the MTV show Girl Code, has finally debuted the trailer for her new show Loosely Exactly Nicole, a comedic look on her life as a black actress struggling to make it in Hollywood.
Teen Mom 2's Jenelle Evans is upset with MTV...again...about their editing this season and claims she’s reconsidering her involvement in the show.
Actor and eater Zac Efron is hosting an upcoming MTV special about millennials and food. But really it’s about much more than that.
This is, as founding MTV VJ Mark Goodman explains in the clip, Prince’s first ever television interview, for MTV. He was 27 at the time, and fully formed into an ethereal presence; the first sentence he ever said on television was, “I don’t live in a prison, and I’m not afraid of anything.”
MTV’s Real World producers, still desperate to appeal to bored millennial viewers, are switching up the seven-strangers-in-a-home format once again. Unfortunately, the germ-infested hot tub is running extremely dry.
Wednesday night’s way-too-real episode of MTV’s The Challenge: Battle of the Bloodlines revealed what looks like an emotionally damaging relationship between two of the show’s most loved/hated cast members, Cara Maria and Abram.
In a push to create more female-focused content, MTV has ordered four new pilots, all led and created (at least in part) by women. The always delightful Nicole Byer, cast member of MTV’s Girl Code and the star and co-writer (alongside Saturday Night Live’s Sasheer Zamata) of the UCB’s perfect “Be Blacker” sketch, has…
As everyone knows, the annual Video Music Awards (which aired Sunday night on MTV) is a veritable who’s who of the red carpet—mostly because you’re literally asking yourself WHO? every time someone new walks on stage.
Commitment: it’s tricky. (Murder is too.) If you had to Fuck/Marry/Kill the above outfits see on the 2015 VMAs red carpet, how would you choose?
Last night, as Taylor Swift pulled a classic derail on Nicki Minaj’s very important VMA tweets, Twitter user @chaelinfenty brought up an interesting point: “can we talk about how taylor’s video isn’t original and was copied from a group of four WOC, 2NE1,” she wrote, not a question but a declaration.
Ibiza, the super classy island of coke, ecstasy and endless glowing drinks, is worried about its reputation thanks to MTV’s upcoming reality show, Ibiza Shore. As if Snookie, J Wow and The Situation didn’t drive up tourism in the Garden State, duh.
